We sat down with LiveBig’s Business Development Manager, Maria Babiera, recently to explain how LiveBig works to assist and support Support Coordinators in the NDIS space. If you need extra services and / or support contact us at 1300 390 222.
How does LiveBig work with support coordinators?
We have a good understanding of how critical the role of support coordinators is to NDIS participants based on our combined years of experience in the disability sector. LiveBig is committed to respond to enquiries, concerns, requests, and referrals for services most relevant to their participants. As a high quality service provider, LiveBig also understands that a participants’ wellbeing is the number one priority for everyone involved.
LiveBig works with Support Coordinators often functioning as an added support system, proactively providing Support Coordinators with updates of our service offerings, our capacity, wait times and transparency of our capacity to deliver types of supports.
Starting With LiveBig Is Easy
Starting your journey with LiveBig is quick and easy. The diagram below shows you what happens after an initial discussion with a member of our Team.
Tell Us Your Needs
You express your needs and we will draft a service agreement for you outlining our proposed services to meet your needs.
Sign Your Service Agreement
We will explain the Service Agreement to you. Once you’re happy with the agreement, sign and send it back.
Find The Right Match
We will allocate you a clinician who meets your preferences and needs.
Schedule Your First Appointment
Your clinician will contact you to arrange your initial appointment.
Begin Your Therapy Plan
After your initial appointment, we will work with you to develop a therapy plan to start your journey toward your goals.
We will provide services that meet your needs (e.g. reports, assistive technology, home modifications, intervention programs).
We will review progress regularly and seek your input on changes to the therapy plan. When your plan is due for review, we will provide you with a report.
When your new plan is ready, we’ll develop a new service agreement.
What Can I Expect When I Start with LiveBig
At this stage, Maria will speak to Support Coordinators about LiveBig’s service capacity, service coverage and any preference a Support Coordinators’ participants would have before sending a full referral. Once we identify that we have service capacity in a participants’ location and preferences can potentially be considered, Support Coordinators will be able to send through a full referral.
Referral Received Stage
On reception of the full referral, LiveBig will start to match suitable clinicians to support the participant. This matching is based on a list of criteria including location, suitable experience and other factors that consider a clinician’s area of specialty.
Contracting Active Stage
Our CSC (Corporate Service Coordinator) will issue a Service Agreement and Consent Form to authorised signatories to review and sign. We furnish a copy of the Service Agreement and Consent form to Support Coordinators so they can also review and keep them in the loop to be sure that these documents are signed and returned on a timely manner. Once we receive the signed documents (Service Agreements and Consent Form), the CSC Team will provide an update to the participant/family and Support Coordinators about the next steps.
Once the clinician is assigned, the CSC team will update the participant/family/Support Coordinators accordingly via email and the initial appointment organised by the assigned clinician.
“Appreciate and thankful for your support as always.”
“Thank you for your prompt response to my enquiry and referral.”
